The `80s were America¿s decade of decadence when everything went big! From shoulder pads to bank balances. Huge passion led to huge profit, and amidst an explosion of luxury brands and unbridled credit, we splashed the cash like there was no tomorrow. Ronald Reagan fought for conservative values, Madonna didn't, we all wanted to know who shot J.R. and we watched it all play out on brand new cable networks MTV and CNN. Then came the `90s, the Berlin Wall had just fallen, and soon other walls were coming down too - between public and private, news and entertainment, reality and fantasy. The winds of change brought new voices speaking hard truths and thrust sex and celebrity into the limelight like never before. Our collective tabloid obsessions were fuelled by the birth of the internet, heralding a new era of mass information, and misinformation.
